When it comes to house cleaning we dread the most, the vast majority of us would easily say it’s the bathroom. We dread the task of cleaning the bathroom because it takes too long and it’s a dirty job. But someone has to do it, right? So why not make it a little easier with some great tips. Read on….
Tackling The Cleaning Monster
Before you start picturing yourself on your hands and knees scrubbing till your fingertips are raw, check out our tips to make it easier. The key to keeping the bathroom clean is doing a little every day, after each use. It really will save you a lot of elbow grease. You don’t have to use strong chemicals to get your bathroom sparkling clean; chances are you already have things in your kitchen that will do the job.
The Dirty Shower Curtain. If you have a shower curtain liner that is full of soap scum or mildew, you don’t have to throw it away. Simply toss it in your washing machine with a little bleach or vinegar and a small amount of detergent. Use warm water and wash it on the gentle cycle, then hang it back up to dry.
Polishing Fixtures. Restore the beautiful shine on your bathroom fixture by polishing them with a paste of lemon juice and baking soda. Keep an old toothbrush for this task and after applying the paste to the fixtures with the toothbrush, let them dry before buffing with a cloth until the sparkle is restored.
Mineral Deposits. If you have hard water in your area, you may find that you’re always trying to get rid of those white mineral deposits left behind on your brass or silver fixtures. Cleaning these isn’t impossible; in fact, it’s pretty easy. Here’s how: Get some household white vinegar and soak either a cloth or a few paper towels in the vinegar before wrapping them around the fixtures with the mineral deposits. Let this sit overnight. The next day, make a mild soapy water solution in the sink and use a toothbrush dipped in it to begin scrubbing the deposits away. You may need to do this a few times to get it all off, but it will work.
The main thing to remember when it comes to cleaning the bathrooms is to do a little bit each day to prevent huge amounts of buildup from soap scum to water spots that can turn into mildew. It’s important to keep things in the bathroom as dry as possible to prevent mold, which can lead to health issues. If you can’t squeegee or dry wet areas in the bathroom, then make sure you at least have good ventilation with fans, etc.
Finally, use the same tip from above to clean a grimy shower door. Use salt, baking soda, and lemon juice to scrub shower doors and tiles and then polish dry. It’s easy to clean with natural products, so why not give it a try! You’ll breathe better air and enjoy the kind of clean that can only come from going green according to cleaning service professionals
